With the Delta Variant on the rise, it was great to see Free Guy have a strong opening weekend. Free Guy debuted this weekend to solid results. The film grossed $28.4M domestically, which easily put it as the number one movie in North America.
At the same time Jungle Cruise continues to do well at the box office even with the duel release on Disney+. The Dwayne Johnson, Emily Blunt thrill ride is sitting at third place at the box office in its third weekend. Jungle Cruise finished Sunday with a domestic total of $82.1M and $72.2M overseas for a worldwide total of $154.3M.
Both of these films doing well the past weekend gives hope for fans of the upcoming Marvel movie Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings which opens in theatres Labor Day weekend.
We hope that these two films are an indication that the theaters are rebounding.
